OTA*: Colorful Cube

At the risk of further enraging those readers who hate off-topic posts, here's a photo (does it count as on-topic for architectural photography?) of the fantastic new Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision building in Hilversum, by architects Willem Jan Neutelings and Michiel Riedijk. The brightly colored facade, which the Times says "draw[s] on everything from primitive temples to comic-book illustration and the decorative ephemera of Andy Warhol," are made of cast glass. The building is conceived as a cube that is half underground and half above.

Watch the building go up in photographs.
